  • TOR Small Forward #9
    RJ Barrett (left knee injury management) has been ruled out for Friday’s tilt with the Hawks.
    Barrett will get the night off for the second game of Toronto’s back-to-back set. In his stead, Bruce Brown should get the start, with Ochai Agbaji and Gradey Dick picking up some extra playing time as well. Immanuel Quickley could be the focal point of the offense, and he’s in a great spot. Atlanta has allowed 125.7 points per game at home this season - most in the Association.
  • GSW Point Guard #3
    Chris Paul accounted for three points (1-of-3 FGs), one rebound, two assists, and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes in Tuesday’s 118-94 loss to the Kings.
    Paul’s first season with the Warriors ended poorly, as the veteran point guard did not offer much value when on the court. That wasn’t the case during the regular season, as CP3 (Yahoo ADP: 72.7) was a top 100 player in 9-cat formats. However, Paul only appeared in 58 games, averaging a career-low 9.2 points and 6.8 assists (second-lowest average of his career). The 2024-25 season is a contract year for the 38-year-old Paul, who turns 39 in May. It’s difficult to envision his role being enhanced, so look for the ADP to be considerably lower than it was ahead of this season.
  • GSW Shooting Guard #2
    Brandin Podziemski shot 2-of-3 from the field in Tuesday’s 118-94 loss to the Kings, scoring five points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.
    Podziemski did not offer much scoring on Tuesday, but the rookie guard led the Warriors in rebounds with eight. Off the radar in most fantasy leagues before the season began, Podziemski played well enough to earn starters’ minutes at one point. He would eventually return to the bench, but Podziemski (and fellow rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis) was one of the bright spots for the Warriors in 2023-24. His fantasy value for next season depends on what the Warriors do with Klay Thompson, who will be an unrestricted free agent in June. If Klay moves on, Podziemski is one of the players who would benefit.
  • GSW Power Forward #00
    Jonathan Kuminga logged 28 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to Sacramento, producing 16 points (6-of-15 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), seven rebounds, two assists, and one blocked shot.
    While some of their starters struggled in Tuesday’s defeat, the Warriors received good minutes from Kuminga and Moses Moody. Both scored 16 points off the bench, with the former capping a decent third season. However, even with the improved production, Kuminga finished the regular season just outside the top 150 in 8- and 9-cat formats. As for Moody, his 16 points were supplemented by three rebounds, one assist, and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes. He finished the season ranked outside the top 250 in 8- and 9-cat formats. Both wings are eligible for rookie-scale extensions this summer, with Kuminga appearing to have a better chance of receiving that kind of commitment from the Warriors.
  • GSW Power Forward #32
    Trayce Jackson-Davis tallied two points and one rebound in 11 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Kings.
    While the partnership of Jackson-Davis and Draymond Green worked well during the regular season, that was not the case on Tuesday. And Warriors coach Steve Kerr did not give the rookie much time to figure things out. Jackson-Davis began the game defending Harrison Barnes, with Green getting Domantas Sabonis, and that was not a good matchup for the rookie. Tuesday was disappointing, but that does not erase the progress made by TJD throughout his rookie season. Not even on the board in fantasy drafts, Jackson-Davis played well enough to carve out a consistent role. He’ll be worth a late-round pick in standard leagues ahead of the 2024-25 campaign.
  • GSW Shooting Guard #11
    Klay Thompson missed all 10 of his shots in Tuesday’s 118-94 loss to the Kings, going scoreless with four rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes.
    If Tuesday’s game happens to be the last Thompson plays as a member of the Warriors, this was a brutal way for him to go out. For the first time in his NBA career, Klay went scoreless in a game he logged at least 12 minutes in. While there were some struggles for him throughout this season, Tuesday was uncharacteristically bad. After providing top-75 per-game value in 2022-23, the expectation was that Thompson would do the same in 2023-24. He wasn’t a terrible fantasy asset, but the top 100 value in 9-cat formats did not match his ADP (75.4). Klay will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, and the question is what his role will look like with the Warriors (or another team).
  • GSW Small Forward #22
    Andrew Wiggins accounted for 12 points (4-of-11 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs), three rebounds, two assists, one block, and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Kings.
    Wiggins’ disappointing 2023-24 season ended on Tuesday, and he lost minutes to Jonathan Kuminga and Brandin Podziemski during the defeat in Sacramento. This game was a microcosm of his season as a player with a Yahoo ADP of 90 who finished outside the top 200 in 8- and 9-cat formats. Wiggins’ fantasy prospects for next season depend on his ability to bounce back and other areas of the roster. The Warriors have significant decisions to make regarding Klay Thompson (unrestricted free agent) and Jonathan Kuminga (extension-eligible).
  • GSW Power Forward #23
    Draymond Green played 35 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to Sacramento, amassing 12 points (4-of-8 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two 3-pointers.
    Green was also responsible for three turnovers in the Warriors’ final game of the season, but the overall production was solid. Looking at his season in totality, Draymond certainly had his disciplinary issues, but he also improved as a 3-point shooter. Green made a career-best 39.5% of his 2.3 attempts per game. While the scoring average held steady, fantasy managers can’t overlook Draymond’s improvement as a shooter. Entering the season with a Yahoo ADP of 95, he provided top 100 per-game value in 9-cat formats while finishing just outside the top 80 in 8-cat.
  • GSW Point Guard #30
    Stephen Curry shot 8-of-16 from the field and 3-of-3 from the foul line in Tuesday’s 118-94 loss to the Kings, scoring 22 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
    Curry’s 15th NBA season came to a disappointing end, even though he led the Warriors in scoring. Six turnovers countered the shooting percentages, and the Warriors committed 16. Looking ahead to next season, Curry is one of the few “sure things” on the roster. Beginning the 2023-24 campaign with a Yahoo ADP of 6.7, he ranked within the top 20 in 8-cat formats and the top 25 in 9-cat. Whether or not Curry is worthy of being selected with a top-10 pick in drafts will depend partially on what the Warriors’ overall roster looks like.
  • SAC Power Forward #10
    Domantas Sabonis finished Tuesday’s 118-94 win over the Warriors with 16 points (7-of-14 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), 12 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and one blocked shot in 37 minutes.
    Sabonis and the Kings are one step closer to a second straight playoff berth, as they took advantage of offensive rebounds and Warriors turnovers to keep their season alive. The NBA leader in double-doubles recorded another on Tuesday, finishing three assists shy of a triple-double. Also, Sabonis only committed one turnover in his 37 minutes on the floor. The Kings will visit New Orleans on Friday, with the winner receiving the West’s No. 8-seed. New Orleans won all five regular-season meetings by an average of 19.0 points.
  • SAC Small Forward #13
    Keegan Murray shot 10-of-20 from the field and 4-of-4 from the foul line in Tuesday’s win over the Warriors, scoring 32 points with nine rebounds, two steals, and eight 3-pointers in 39 minutes.
    What a night for Murray, who scored 11 of Sacramento’s first 15 points and did not let up. The second-year forward improved his production across the board compared to his rookie campaign, except for 3-point percentage (35.8% compared to 41.1% last season). Murray finished the regular season providing 5th-round per-game value in 9-cat formats while ranking just inside the top 100 in 8-cat. Tuesday’s victory earned Sacramento a matchup with New Orleans on Friday, and the winner will be the 8-seed in the West.
